Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
I have to admit that baking is not my forte. I used to love baking in high school and would always be popping this or that in the oven, but I fell of that bandwagon once college hit and have stayed off ever since.  So, when I decided to tackle these cookies, I knew that I had to study up on what I was getting myself into because I was a little rusty. It might surprise many people to know that I was actually pre-med in college and worked in a hospital lab for a year (I know — big career switch). But that's to say that I am no stranger to exacting measurements and understanding the necessity for precision. You see, baking is much like science, much more than cooking is, and it's all about creating a balance when it comes to cookies. What is that exactly? Well, I followed Michael Ruhlman's advice of having a 1:2:3 ratio for sugar to fat to flour, and, as he advises, then you can play around with whatever else you want from there. It's also a good idea to have a leavener like whipped egg whites, baking soda, or baking powder.  So that's what I did for these chocolate peanut butter cookies. Plus follow these tips for making the perfect cookie.

Some of the best hazelnuts in the world are grown in the northern part of Italy, in the Piedmont region. Nearby, the region of Lombardy is home to gorgonzola cheese, and just over the mountains in Switzterland is where they make Gruyère. Like the geography that connects the ingredients, the flavors in this delicious sandwich come together seamlessly.

I only need to read the name of this sauce and I see the fillets of sole in the hot sauté pan, delicate and golden around the edges, the perfect sweet partner for this zesty but elegant sauce. Or, to make a slightly lighter dish, I might cook the sole en papillote — seasoned with salt and pepper, wrapped in parchment (or aluminum foil, let’s make things easy), and baked with no added fat. Bake the packets on a large rimmed baking sheet in a 400-degree oven for five to eight minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. It’s so simple and delicious. The sauce is also excellent on braised or grilled leeks, or as a dipping sauce for steamed artichoke. Click here to read more about sauces.

Peanut Butter and Jelly 'Sushi'
My kids love to say they eat sushi, even if it is made with peanut butter. We incorporate peanut butter into my youngest daughter’s diet almost daily, per our doctor’s recommendation. She is severely allergic to tree nuts and has a slight allergy to peanuts. Because the peanut allergen levels are so low, her doctor suggested she eat peanuts daily so she doesn’t become more allergic to them. (Do not follow this advice without your doctor's recommendation.) Although we were nervous about this routine at first, the doctor was right: She’s never had a reaction to peanuts. Let’s just say it’s a good thing she likes peanut butter! Still, we have to get tricky to keep things fresh and new. Be sure to include a reusable fork.
